Would you like to know what the first mainstream book on marathon training had to say back in 1978? I thought you might! I took this book from my dad’s shelf last summer and just got around to reading it. If this was his guide to marathon training, no wonder his PR is way better than mine. ______________________Back then they had just started using periodization, among the masses at least. In the chapter on training, they recommend 67 miles per week during the off season, bumping up to 94 in the 4 weeks before a race. 😭 At least there was this comforting line: “that 110 to 120 miles a week average is excessive”. My dad underlined that. I guess he needed reminding? Also, you need to hit 490 miles in your last 8 weeks of training to avoid hitting the wall in your race. ________________________Diet: carbs aren’t necessary for health but are great for exercise, so eat all of them. Don’t bother with supplements. No mention of food during a race. They didn’t do that back then. Also they said don’t eat 10 hours before your marathon. _____________________Clothes: 30-40 dollars for running shoes is ridiculous, but hopefully those prices will drop. Don’t bother with motion control.These fancy new shorts are available with built in undies! Don’t forget to use petroleum jelly all over. _______________________Injuries: no mention of plantar fasciitis. Was this not a thing back then? _________________________The book recommended monitoring heart rate every morning to spot over-training. I was surprised that’s been around so long! _______________________The more things change, the more they stay the same. If you can hit that mileage without getting injured, you are going to have a good race. I doubt I’ve ever hit 67 miles in a week, which is why my marathon PR is 4:07!

I warned ya’ll yesterday that I was on a memoir kick, right? This one is a compilation of personal essays by Maggie O’Farrell that describe seventeen near-death experiences she’s experienced at different points in her life. The title stood out to me because it is inspired by a book I posted a couple weeks ago: "I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am."—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar •❝The things in life which don't go to plan are usually more important, more formative, in the long run, than the things that do.❞•#book #reading #reader #nonfiction #memoir #librarian #bibliophile #bookstagram #igreads #instabooks #instareads #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookworm #bibliophile #watercolor

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie 📚-“A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still.” 👫-📸 Photograph by @knowyourbooks-This book is a must-read for anyone looking to improve their personal and professional relationships. Even though the book was published in 1936, the principles are still very relevant today. A few of the most important concepts from this book are:-1️⃣ Don’t criticize other people. Criticizing someone else will almost always turn out counterintuitive. A person confronted with negative criticism will often try to defend or justify their behavior, and condemn you in return.-2️⃣ The only way to get anyone to do anything is by making the other person want to do it. Don’t focus on what you yourself can gain, but focus on what value the other person can get out of a situation.-3️⃣ Be a good listener and be genuinely interested in other people. One of our greatest desires is to feel important, so make sure you pay attention to what other people have to say. “To be interesting, be interested.”-Like if you enjoyed this book! ❤️

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King 📝-📸 Photograph by @abominatiion-This book will be a good read for anyone looking for advice on writing and storytelling. My 3 favorite quotes from this book:-💬 “If you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects. If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered, anyway.”-💬 “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut.”-💬 “Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”-If you liked this post, follow @habitofreading for daily book recommendations 🙌-Tag someone who needs to read this book!

Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy by Mo Gawdat 📚-“Life is bound to deal you a few bad hands now and then. You don’t need to make a big deal out of every unexpected turn of events. Your path may be rerouted, but nothing is lost unless you decide to quit.”-📸 Photograph by @gallerybooks-Mo Gawdat is the Chief Officer at Google X, and in this book he shares his equation for happiness. Remarkably, this book was written briefly after Gawdat’s son died, and should be an excellent read for anyone struggling with unhappiness, depression, loss, or grief. That being said, I would recommend this book to anyone looking to increase their happiness, whether you are already doing well or not. Five key takeaways from this book:-1️⃣ The happiness equation: Happiness is equal to or greater than your perception of the events of your life, minus your expectations of how life should behave.-2️⃣ Happiness is our default state. Therefore, you should look for happiness from within, not from the outside.-3️⃣ Never think you know it all. There is always a chance that you are wrong. There is always a chance you missed out on an important detail. You never know for sure. How many of the worst things you faced, turned out in time to be the best things that ever happened to you?-4️⃣ When things aren’t going your way, don’t look at it as the world being against you. Look at it as the world pushing you away from an ordinary life, into an extraordinary life.-5️⃣ Find out what you fear, and commit to facing it. We don’t become unhappy because life is unfair, but because our expectations of life are blurred by fear. Let go of doomsday-scenarios, and start being optimistic about what’s next.-If you liked this post, follow @habitofreading for daily book recommendations!
